Forums - Website Topics - Hide Avatar Banners

...so - one of our users had a simple request; he wanted to hide the banner flags that appear on top of your avatar in threads, profile pages, and on the member search page. Since this request was coming from a Supporter, I tend to oblige whenever feasible (sorry guys - but I will always give preferential treatment to users that are willing to help fund this site!!!) and added an option to the Preferences page which allow users to hide their banners.

Well - a mere 24hrs later, and this simple request managed to come to a head as somewhat "controversial" among the staff here. So fine - I've now gone back in and changed it so you can pick & choose which banners you want to hide.

Obviously, if you don't already have a specific banner showing on your avatar, you won't have the option to actually hide that banner. But, if you do have specific banners (moderator, dbadmin, supporter, ambassador, etc.) you can now suppress those flags individually...     

 

...except for you, Rol. Yours are hardcoded and I'm not going to build more code, just to support one users vanity - yours are on, permanently. :P

Unless he becomes a supporter, right?

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Sounds like the best solution. Good job!

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I don't really understand what this is about, to be honest. Could we have some context?

As far as I can see, people with official positions should have their banners displayed in the name of transparency. On the other hand, people who have banners "because they have friends on the admin/mod team" ... why is that even a thing in the first place?

Staff members tend to be bullies, so it's good if they have a punching bag. I suffer, so that you and others won't have to.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
